Dom hadn’t made plans to go to university before college, but left Priestley to study Medicine at Newcastle.
He discovered his passion after taking the Pre Med course at Priestley College and finished in the top 10% in the country on a clinical aptitude test.
In 2016 he said: “A year ago I wasn’t sure what I was going to do, but now I realise I want a career in science that is also a social profession.”
Students hoping to study Medicine at most universities have to take the UKCAT – an aptitude test that helps lecturers make more informed choices from amongst the many highly-qualified applicants who apply for places.
Dom completed a four-week Nuffield placement with Unilever during his time at Priestley.
